Illinois State offers one of the few gerontology practice concentrations for Master of Social Work (MSW) programs in the state.
This Social Work - Gerontology Practice sequence at Illinois State University emphasizes the development, delivery, and management of services to meet the specific needs of the growing population of elderly. The curriculum prepares graduates for advanced practice across an array of settings including long-term care centers, assisted living centers, mental health centers and institutions, elder protection agencies, medical agencies, and community centers.
Students who pursue this concentration in the Master of Social Work (M.S.W.) program may qualify for the Social Aspects of Aging certificate from the Department of Sociology and Anthropology. Some of the coursework, including electives, draw from a cross-disciplinary curriculum. In addition to coursework that is specific to gerontology, students will complete their advanced practicum in an agency setting with older adults.
